BSI Kitemark
Why is the BSI Kitemark for polymeric pipes so important?
So if youre looking to differentiate your products in the
marketplace and are looking for experts with the recognized
industry knowledge to give your products trusted recognition
to open up new markets, were here to help.

We have expertise and experience in independent and impartial So how can I achieve the BSI Kitemark?
testing and certification of polymeric pipes, fittings and associated
products for various applications including: For a manufacturer to achieve the BSI Kitemark, the following steps
typically need to be taken:
Soil and waste systems
Initial laboratory type testing of the product;
Initial assessment of the manufacturing site and associated
Subsoil field drains manufacturing quality plan (usually to a recognised standard such
Cold and hot potable water supply systems as ISO 9001)
Gas supply On-going factory assessments and product testing , once or twice
a year, to ensure that the quality plan remains in place and agreed
In order to achieve a BSI Kitemark, manufacturers submit samples
manufacturing procedures are being followed
of products that will carry this trusted quality mark to our laboratory
for third party independent testing against various key industry A product audit of samples from current production to the
standards. During this rigorous process the products will be relevant standard to ensure products continue to comply. This also
